About Bowman Cellars

Bowman Cellars was founded in 2013 the Bowman’s, a fifth (now sixth) generation Northern California family. Alexander Bowman, the youngest member at the time, brought together his wine industry family, to produce wines that express a sense a place from the stunning appellations in which they reside.

Alex grew up making wine with his father Doug from fruit off their Sauvignon Blanc vineyard in west Santa Rosa, as well as Zinfandel from their vineyard in Mountain Ranch, located in the Sierra Foothills. Alex and Doug, believe in growing their crops with a soft human touch, so they don’t interfere with the way of nature and sourcing their fruit from local farmers that have the same integrity and style as their own.

Bowman Cellars officially launched to the public in Spring of 2017. With a growing wine club and blossoming wholesale accounts, the next step was a formal tasting room and event space. Opened February of 2018, I the West Sonoma County town of Graton, Bowman Cellars tasting room became a ‘must experience’ stop on the Russian River Valley wine trail.

At Bowman, we believe in our wines and know that they pair best with family, friends and locally sourced food. Our culinary offerings exemplify those beliefs. Providing experiences like Winemaker Lunches, Food & Wine Pairings, to Smash Burgers for our popular Friday Night Happy Hour.

Come and experience the award winning wines, friendly atmosphere, delectable food, and find out for yourself what all the buzz is about!

“My wife Katie and I have known each other for over 10 years and have been married since 2014, both working separately; me at my fathers company Bowman Electric and her at her grandparents business, Andy’s Produce Market in Sebastopol. Creating Bowman Cellars gives us the ability to follow our passion for great wines, amazing food, and all that living in wine country has to offer. Bowman Cellars allows both of our growing families a space to come together and open our doors to our friends, neighbors and visitors to share what we love so much – and we look forward to becoming the new generation of wine tasting”
